Unibrow not withstanding, it's Davis.

His combination of size with that skill set is extremely rare.

I like McAdoo a lot. He's more polished at the moment, and has a more pure position. In fact, it may even take Davis a year to finish growing into his body, and understanding how to fill a role when he's been so unique for so long that he's been able to freelance, but he brings such a rare commodity to the table that it can't be turned down.

Anthony Davis. I like McAdoo, but guys with Davis' package of size, athleticism, and skills don't come by very often. The meteoric rise he showed in two years of high school leaves only optimism for how much more he could improve.

Huh?

I'm guessing either...you don't live in the US or you don't follow Duke that closely.

well i dont live in the us, but thats irrelevant.

duke already have the plumlees at center, so davis would be an upgrade, but not a huge one. but mcadoo on the other hand would be a huge upgrade for duke at either forward position. apart from ryan kelly, who hasnt really shown much in his first two years, duke dont have any forward who can really generate offense, and mcadoo could do that.

so id pick mcadoo just because he fits a much bigger need.

i dont see whats so strange about that

Also, you'd theoretically be taking him off the UNC roster.


At the prospect level, I generally don't look too deep into positional needs, unless it's multiple PGs. Otherwise I'd rather just have the five most talented guys and figure it out afterward.
